In a major development for the AccuGuide auto-steering technology package, Case IH will be launching a significant update at SIMA in the form ot AccuTurn, which automates the headland turn process and guides tractors accurately into the next chosen pass. Activated at the press of a button, AccuTurn takes control of headland steering to enter the chosen next pass cleanly and accurately.
Also new is the elimination of the need for the driver to count the number of tramlines when drilling, courtesy of new 3D field maps displayed on the AFS 700 terminal. Passes in which a tramline was set, or needs to be set, are colour-coded. The improved tramline management now makes it possible to make simultaneous use of swath skipping and tramline functions, and the new feature helps avoid tramline errors which can affect application accuracy and be visible until harvest.
New Guidance Pattern for headland corners
Automatic guidance systems have typically rounded-off field corners, with 90-degree corners requiring manual steering when being worked. With a new corner function, it is now possible to work every field right into each corner and create 90-degree corners, as the A-B lines on the screen extend beyond the field boundaries. Immediately after the working implement engages in a headland corner, the AccuGuide steering system is activated.
Other new developments in Case IH precision farming technology include revisions to AccuGuide operation through the AFS 700 terminal, allowing field boundaries to now also be imported into the AccuGuide system in Shape File format. Different types of Shape File data such as application maps for drilling, fertilising or spray application can be produced externally and imported into the terminal via a USB drive inserted into an existing port on the AFS700 terminal. This eliminates the need to produce an entirely new file using external desktop software, resulting in significant time savings.
The ElectriSteer universal auto-steer motor was launched at Agritechnica 2015 and is targeted primarily at small tractors not supplied guidance-ready from the factory, as well as older tractors and combines. The key benefit of the ElectriSteer product over other retrofit auto-steer motors is that it can work in conjunction with the Case IH AFS 700 terminal.
The RTK+ signal makes it possible to achieve a year-on-year repeatable precision level of 2.5 centimetres, which can be repeated at any time. xFill Premium is a new function that makes it possible to continue working seamlessly without a time limit if the RTK correction signal is interrupted and the existing xFill bridging signal terminates after the standard 20 minute period, or if precision drops below 4cm accuracy. To obtain xFill Premium, an annual licence has to be purchased. The existing xFill (bridging for up to 20 minutes) remains free of charge.
AFS Connect Telematics - Being networked is smart
The depiction of vehicle positions in the field through the AFS Connect telematics system has now been improved, with the 'Fleet History Map' now showing the direction of travel and, using colour codes, also indicating the activity being carried out. This makes it easier for the owner, the operator and, where relevant, the dealer, to understand the tractor’s activities and the areas of land covered. In addition, should they wish to do so customers can now provide their dealers with the telemetry data of their tractor(s), enabling dealers to provide better levels of customer support. With the latest update, two-way data transfer is now possible for all supported file formats (.cn1, ISOXML). Shape File application maps can also be transmitted via the portal to the AFS700 monitor.
